NFL 2014 Mock Draft
Round 2 - Picks 49-64

CMD #12
April 23, 2014


49 NY Jets
Bashaud Breeland
    Clemson
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
197
Alternate Pick #1
Davante Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Gabe Jackson
After they cut Cromartie, the Jets were expected to make a big move in FA to replace him but that never materialized. The Dimitri Patterson signing seems more of a 1-year Band-Aid rather than a permanent fix so CB will again be high on the team's list of priorities in this year's Draft. Rex Ryan has been known to take the odd trip to Clemson to watch his son Seth play, so you can be sure that he has seen plenty of Tigers CB Bashaud Breeland. With two RD1 picks spent on CBs during his tenure as Jets' HC, expect Rex's penchant for drafting CBs high to continue again this year.
50 Miami
Bishop Sankey
    Washington
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:
5'9"
Weight:
209
Alternate Pick #1
Shayne Skov
Alternate Pick #2
Carlos Hyde
Like I said, offensive weapons are as important to Tannehill's success as a rebuilt offensive line would be. Adding Ebron in RD1 is a great start. Supplementing that selection with a feature RB is icing on the cake. Sankey is the best ball carrier in the 2014 draft class, according to our rankings. While his selection may seem like overkill with Moreno, Miller, and Thomas already on the roster, things may look completely different next offseason. Moreno's on a 1-year "prove it" deal, Miller didn't advance enough in 2013, and Thomas may be cut before Training Camp begins. Sankey is an experienced, competitive, and talented zone runner who was a Captain for the Huskies.
51 Chicago
Shayne Skov
    Stanford
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Keith McGill
Alternate Pick #2
Jonathan Dowling
Despite drafting two Linebackers in last year's Draft, there still remains a gaping hole at MLB in Chicago. J. Bostic was a high-round pick whom the Bears had/have high hopes for, but he appears overmatched in the middle. Emery has already hinted at a switch to OLB for him. DJ Williams was re-signed to man the middle this year, but he is nothing more than a stop-gap with a shaky injury history. Round 2 seems like a reach to add depth to the position, and I would probably agree with that. However, it would not be a wasted pick. Skov, like many in this deep draft, is a borderline RD1 talent who could prove to be a long-term answer.
52 Arizona
Kareem Martin
    North Carolina
    DE34
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
272
Alternate Pick #1
Will Clarke
Alternate Pick #2
Josh Mauro
Once again in this DRAFTSIM the Cardinals go with back-to-back picks on the defensive side of the ball. Kareem Martin is the type of Defensive End that the Cardinals would love to have. Standing at 6'6" with 35" arms he has the length to hold up as a 3-4 Defensive End. Furthermore, Martin has an explosive lower body which gives him the necessary range to keep Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick from making plays with their legs outside of the pocket. Martin also has the added value of being able to kick inside and rush the passer from the Defensive Tackle position in Nickel situations. ~ Jordan Plocher, Cardinals Analyst
53 Green Bay
Marcus Martin
    USC
    OC
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
310
Alternate Pick #1
Davante Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Yawin Smallwood
In his tenure with the Packers, GM Ted Thompson has never drafted a Center prospect who primarily played... Center. With the Packers looking at their fourth different starter at Center in four years, perhaps it's time. Martin played some Guard early in his career, but took to the Center position best and is well-suited to play that position in a ZBS blocking scheme. Martin is more of a wall and seal blocker than power blocker, which fits the Packers fine.

54 Philadelphia
James Gayle
    Virginia Tech
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
259
Alternate Pick #1
Jackson Jeffcoat
Alternate Pick #2
Aaron Lynch
A pattern has certainly developed for the Eagles' Round 2 pick in our DRAFTSIM; former Hokie Gayle is the pick once more. Doesn't seem to matter who Philly takes in RD1 (receiver or defensive back); an OLB - likely Gayle - is the choice. The Eagles need to upgrade their pass rush, both for their average attack as well as their future depth. Cole surprised with his performance last year but he's fighting a fight (age) that he can't win. Barwin and Graham were average (6 sacks, 11 QB hits, 49 hurries, 7 broken passes, 59 tackles combined) with the latter reportedly being shopped in at least one trade. Gayle's a solid choice but the Eagles may be hoping Georgia Tech's Attaochu drops.
55 Cincinnati
Scott Crichton
    Oregon State
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     +23
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
273
Alternate Pick #1
Jackson Jeffcoat
Alternate Pick #2
Billy Turner
Cincy could go many ways here but can't pass on the value. With the addition of Sam Montgomery they might go with someone else, but Crichton is a stud. He has a high motor and is a relentless pass rusher. The Bengals are hoping RD2 project Margus Hunt from last year's draft will fill the shoes left by MJ93. Hunt is also going on 27 already. Crichton will compete to start right away and allow Cincy to release the aging and dinged-up Geathers. With this pick being their 2nd defensive player taken in as many picks, Cincy continues its youth movement on Defense. This will add solid depth on a defense the Bengals will continue to use to carry them to the playoffs.
56 San Francisco
Paul Richardson
    Colorado
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
175
Alternate Pick #1
DaQuan Jones
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
The Niners had been slotted with Marcus Martin and Dri Archer here in the 2nd Round for several weeks, but this time Martin is off the board, and GM Trent Baalke will wait until RD3 to acquire a guy from the next tier of Centers (Richburg, Swanson). Switching up to another need, the need for speed (!), the Niners opt for Paul Richardson of Colorado at WR over Archer. Richardson is nowhere near as fast as Archer (4.40 vs.4.24), but Richardson has more actual experience as an actual wide receiver. Paul Richardson caught 83 balls for 1,343 yards and 10 TDs on a poor team, and he's been in Santa Clara for an official visit.



57 San Diego
Will Clarke
    West Virginia
    DE34
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
273
Alternate Pick #1
Billy Turner
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
This one may come out of left field a bit, given the volume of high picks that the Chargers have sunk into this position; however, I wanted to see a different look than DaQuan Jones for the Bolts here in the 2nd and this is the result. I'm not sure I'm sold on adding another 3-4 DE, but the DRAFTSIM model felt that Will Clarke was the best value. How do you feel, Chargers fans? Personally, I like building the defense, and I think Jones is a better pick than Clarke for this team, but I'd like to hear from you too. Hit me up at Chargers@drafttek.com with your thoughts.
58 New Orleans
Troy Niklas
    Notre Dame
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
270
Alternate Pick #1
Gabe Jackson
Alternate Pick #2
Weston Richburg
This will likely not happen, but ya just never know. The Saints have a player currently considered the best in the NFL at his position: TE Jimmy Graham. So that's just not enough horsepower for the offensive guru, who also happens to be the headcoach: Sean Payton. Why not emulate the Patriots a bit and go with two big TE's and create an absolute mess for Defensive Coordinators trying to match up? Yikes! Add in the improving youngster (Kenny Stills) and an up-and-comer from the wideout depth chart (Morgan, Toon, Meachem, et. al.), and there will be loads of firepower on offense for New Orleans. RD2 is a bit too high in all likelihood, but someone is bound to take a chance on Niklas.
59 Indianapolis
Weston Richburg
    Colorado State
    OC
    Reach/Value:     -24
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
298
Alternate Pick #1
Gabe Jackson
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
Originally Martavis Bryant was the selection for Indianapolis at pick #59, but late on Monday came the stunning news that 26-year old Phil Costas decided to retire. It leaves a gaping void in an already suspect position for the Colts. Khaled Holmes, a rookie last season, rarely saw the field. When he did, it was for a few plays at Guard. However, the Colts had him listed as the starter heading into camp, with Costas as the backup. Maybe Phil wasn't having any of that and decided to call it a career. With just Thomas Austin (no playing time at all in 2013) as the lone, remaining Center on the roster, the obvious need at Center is glaring.
60 Carolina
Gabe Jackson
    Mississippi St
    OG
    Reach/Value:     +14
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
336
Alternate Pick #1
Davante Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Kelcy Quarles
Look for the Panthers to double-dip on big men in hopes of reviving Double-Trouble in 2014. At 6'5, 335 lbs., Gabe Jackson will start help pave the way for the running game. This road-grader is incredibly thick and powerful (recording 30 reps at 225 lbs. at the Combine). Named All-SEC twice in his career, he is battle-tested and ready to go. After taking Big Gabe at Pick #60, DeAngelo Williams will no longer be upset with the offseason moves and could have a career year behind this line. ~Erin Ford, Panthers Analyst @PanthersDrafter
61 San Francisco
DaQuan Jones
    Penn State
    DT34
    Reach/Value:     +8
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
322
Alternate Pick #1
Travis Swanson
Alternate Pick #2
Keith McGill
The Niners still have this and three other picks on Day 2. The team will no doubt be exploring all options to move up for higher quality players, but in the event that GM Trent Baalke cannot swing a deal, the top needs at this pick look to be Center, pass rusher, and CB (another one). But those options require some reach. Then there's RB. The Niner have been bringing them for visits (Storm Johnson, Terrance West) but they can wait until Day 3. The pick here is DaQuan Jones. This is a value pick who won't be needed in his rookie season. We have Jones pegged at Nose Tackle, but the Niners would also consider him at DE in their 3-4 alignment.
62 New England
Kelcy Quarles
    South Carolina
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     +17
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
297
Alternate Pick #1
Yawin Smallwood
Alternate Pick #2
C.J. Fiedorowicz
New England has a recent trend of doubling down on needs in the draft: 2010 brought Gronk and Hernandez (fear not, Pats fans, they get a tight end later in this CMD), 2011 saw them take Vereen and Ridley back-to-back in the 2nd and 3rd, and last year it was the WR duo of Dobson and Boyce. Here, we have the Patriots bulking up their defensive line with Ealy in RD1 and Quarles in RD2. After a season without Wilfork and an offseason pondering life without him, now is the time to identify a DT anchor. Quarles took home both All-SEC (a Belichick favorite) and All-American honors last season, using his interior quickness to rack up 9.5 sacks and would thrive in a 4-3 next to Wilfork.
63 Denver
Keith McGill
    Utah
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -24
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Davante Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Carlos Hyde
Dang. This guy was a revelation the more time I spent on him. At 6'3", 211 lbs, and possessing 4.4-4.5 speed, one has to wonder how he's even available at #63. McGill, as pointed out by Mike Mayock, represents a body type that is highly-coveted in today's NFL and which would be a welcome addition to the Broncos' secondary (whose 2nd, 3rd, and 4th CBs are all under 5'11"). McGill had a healthy and productive Senior year for the Utes in 2013 with 37 Tackles, 12 Passes Defensed, and 1 Interception. However, healthy years have been few and far between and durability is a major concern. If the team doctors are hopeful, though, the toolset is there.
64 Seattle
Seantrel Henderson
    Miami (FL)
    ROT
    Reach/Value:     -9
Height:
6'7''
Weight:
331
Alternate Pick #1
Jarvis Landry
Alternate Pick #2
Martavis Bryant
The biggest need for the Seattle Seahawks is the offensive line and it gets addressed here. Seantrel Henderson has the talent and the size to be not only a starting RT but a dominant one. Henderson has impressive feet and ran the 12th-fastest forty-yard dash of all offensive linemen at the Combine, which is made even more impressive at 6'7'' and 331 lbs. Henderson's talent is never disputed but the big question mark with him is whether his off-the-field issues will catch up with him. He has done his best to move past his mistakes; Pete Carroll and Offensive Line Coach Tom Cable will put him on the right track to be a dominant NFL Right Tackle. ~Rohan Kapur
